and see if it holds is the coalition between the clintons and president obama. that is to me the key political fact in the country, that coalition. if that weren't there, hillary clinton f she were still senator of this state up in new york would be the lightning rod for every middle east problem, every economic problem. she would be the way ted kennedy was back with jimmy carter. the party would be split. and the fact that it is not split i think is key to its success, and its possibility of winning a significant re-election. if they weren't united as they are, i don't think they would be winning next time. >> rose: do you think if she was in the senate now. >> the things that have happened she might be positions herself to challenge. >> not to challenge but even if she didn't, she would be positioned to inevitably play the role of critic because it would just come to her it would be the automatic role for somebody like that. and as it is, because she's part of the team and done this perfect job so far, bill clinton's part of the team, it's really that, i don't know if i said this b

, a third of president obama. and when the therapist picked up one of the cards, gabby giffords said, george bush. doctors told us it's a sign not only of speech recovery but also of cognitive recovery. >> cognitive recovery and speech recovery are two separate processes. someone may be able to speak, but the inability to think clearly may become more evident because now the person is speaking, but the person may not make sense. >> reporter: but in gabby giffords' case, she is making sense, a few words at a time. even speaking to her brother-in-law in space telling him, hi, i'm good. and her office said the congresswoman continues to be briefed just as she'd always been. all last week on egypt. convinced that while she can't speak in full sentences, she can understand what's being said. and her mother is he can stamic.
